JET Charge is currently the largest domestic and dealer charger installation service provider in Australia.

JET Charge will be responsible for the installation of EV hardware and software at the 89 Nissan Dealerships that will sell LEAF across the country – up from 12 when the LEAF debuted in 2012.

In addition to dealerships, JET Charge - as a preferred supplier - will be Nissan’s consumer facing charging installer and post purchase support provider.

“Nissan will have the largest dealership network with EV chargers in Australia,” said Nissan Australia managing director, Stephen Lester.

“We have increased the number of Nissan LEAF sales outlets making it more accessible to more customers.

“The new LEAF is coming and JET Charge guarantees we are ready at dealership, but more importantly, can continue to support new owners with their charging needs.

“JET Charge has the expertise to manage all of Nissan’s electric vehicle infrastructure needs and ensures a full and smooth transition to electric mobility.”

Australian owned and operated, JET Charge is excited to be working with Nissan as it prepares for an electric future.

“Nissan is supporting the LEAF buyers with the whole charging package making sure dealerships and homes can be set up and ready,” said JET Charge founder and chief executive offer, Tim Washington.

“It’s extremely exciting for JET Charge because LEAF is not just another electric car, it’s an electric car that is going to change the way we think about how we use cars.

“From a technological and infrastructure perspective it’s exciting, because working with Nissan allows us to showcase the future of mobility in Australia.”

While electric vehicle sales are yet to take off in Australia, a spike in sales growth is expected to come in the next several years and Nissan is ready.

“We will see a significant rise in electric vehicle sales,” said Washington, who is also the chairperson for the Electric Vehicle Council.

“It will be gradual with a series of jumping points, but we are forecasting a significant increase in EV sales between now and 2025.

“Nissan is very well placed, you can’t underestimate just how important experience is in successfully selling an electric vehicle.

“Having worked with Nissan for the past three years, it’s pretty clear that there has been a lot of preparation and planning ahead of the launch of the new LEAF. 

“It does contrast with other vehicle manufacturers, which is really encouraging as a service provider.

“The arrival of LEAF is a big deal for the industry.”

JET Charge has representatives and specialist electricians and staff all over Australia. It will be responsible for the installation of wall and pedestal units at select Nissan Dealerships, plus be involved in the training of sales staff and service technicians.

JET Charge will work with the dealer to assist owners with their home charging needs and on-going support.

The new Nissan LEAF is an icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s vision for the future of mobility and it redefines the way people drive and live by offering them a new and completely different car ownership experience.
